Cheap Tickets Can Be Found To Most Bowls

December 19, 2015 by Dave Congrove

You can find cheap tickets to most of this year's bowl games, but depending on the bowl, re-sell tickets are not necessarily available in huge numbers.

I scoured the Bowl Section late Friday night/early Saturday morning and found that no tickets were available for either the Hawaii Bowl or the Bahamas Bowl. Both of those games are infinitely more difficult to travel to, and more expensive. Thus, the demand is limited, even on a first-sell basis. There were also no tickets listed for the Miami Beach Bowl or the Arizona Bowl.

At the other end of the spectrum, National Championship Tickets could be had for as little as $621. Only about 155 tickets were available for under $700. They were all in the upper deck, but I would suggest snapping up a pair immediately if you plan attend. If you're waiting to see if you're team makes it past the semifinals, you can always re-sell them yourself. At that point, the demand should be even greater.

Currently, tickets to the semifinal games are quite reasonable. You can attend the Cotton Bowl between Alabama and Michigan State for $26 if you're okay with standing room only. Or you can park your tushy in a seat for $125. Lower bowl end zone tickets will set you back around $250, on average, and great sideline seats are listed in the $500 range.

Clemson and Oklahoma fans can find Orange Bowl Tickets from $73 in the upper deck, and as low as around $200 on the sideline.
